概要

NI is an innovative combination of parasol and garden torch, which realizes the adaptability of modern furniture. Integrating a classic parasol with one-touch lighting system, NI Parasol is expected to play a pioneering role in enhancing the quality of the public environment, from morning to night. The proprietary finger-sensing OTD (one-touch dimmer) allows people to adjust the brightness of the 3-channel lighting system at ease. NI also adopts a low-voltage 12V LED driver that generates very little heat, providing an energy-efficient power supply for a system with over 2000 pcs of 0.1W LEDs.

受賞対象の詳細

デザインコンセプト

"Things tend to be perceived as what they appear to be but in fact they are more than that. " This is why we named the creation NI, which means "neither/nor" in Spanish and French.

背景

We never think about designing a product. We simply create what we need and what we can't find in the market. During our holiday in Maldives's luxury resort, after we dined on the beach and took a walk back to the resort, we came up with a strong feeling that we do need something special in our home garden.

デザイナーの想い

Our message is simple: Interact with the things around you organically, not mechanically. Parasols are originally something for outdoor and used in the daytime. But the creation of NI suggests that furniture can get beyond the boundaries of environment.

企画・開発の意義

We believe that NI contains much potential that it would become a sustainable product. The design value of NI lies in its high functionality and adaptability, as it is expected to serve not only the lifestyle-seekers, but also a range of commercial purposes.

創意工夫

While the development of NI is based on a traditional parasol structure, we are not sacrificing classic aesthetics for modern technology. Instead, the innovative combination of two makes it outstanding. With the all-in-one 3-channel lighting system, people can make desired lighting adjustments at ease. NI is also an environmental friendly product that with only 2424 pieces built-in LEDs, it can cover almost 6 square meter area. People no longer need to spend extra money on setting up outdoor lighting as NI is going to play the role.

審査委員の評価

NIは、パラソルとガーデンライトを組み合わせた革新的な製品で、モダン・ファニチャーならではの融通性を実現している。クラシックなパラソルとワンタッチ式の照明システムを融合させたNIパラソルは、日中・夜間を通じてパブリックな環境の質を向上させる。指を感知する独自開発のOTD(one-touch dimmer、ワンタッチ調光装置)により、3チャンネルからなる照明システムの明るさを簡単に調節できる。さらにNIは、発熱量が非常に少ない低電圧(12 V)のLEDドライバを採用することで、0.1 WのLEDを2000個以上搭載するシステムに対し、エネルギー効率に優れた電源を提供している。伝統的なパラソルの構造と現代の技術を組み合わせることで、好みに合わせた調光を手軽に行える。また、わずか2424個の内臓LEDで、ほぼ6平方メートルの面積を照らすことができるNIは、環境に優しい製品でもある。ライトとしての役割も果たす本製品があれば、屋外照明器具を設置するための追加費用も不要になる。
